The Beyond: Lucio Fulci’s Masterpiece
Last updated on March 7th, 2023 at 12:10 pm
The late Lucio Fulci made many unforgettable films in his career, but The Beyond stands as his crowning achievement as far as I’m concerned.
Long on style and short on logic, this Italian horror treat blends the cosmic horror stylings of HP Lovecraft with the mythos building of Dario Argento’s Three Mothers trilogy.
With inspired direction, unforgettable performances from David Warbeck and Catriona MacColl, and amazing special effects from Gino de Rossi and Germano Natali, The Beyond stands as the pinnacle of Fulci’s cinematic output — and one of the great Italian horror films.
Join me as we take a deeper look at this spaghetti horror classic.
